    Hi Folks, I am over the first surgery, only to be told I need a partial fusion on left knee inside:( When I buck up the courage It`s a 5 months waiting list and 3 months recovery:eek:
    So I have to get a brace for the left knee to give me some time.
    Enough of that *&&^^%%$$$:mad:
    :)
    Here are a few pics from the new area.:D

    That stone wall is just polyfiller on a 2b4:p

    The Leaning Chimney Of Tractionville...

    I love that chimney...it's got character.:) There's a potential mini-scene for you right there...a gaggle of LPPs trying to figure out how to straighten things up. Maybe one hanging from the roof by his safety rope, one doubled up laughing...two fetching a kiddie pool...etc.

    Hi Robin, its a bit of a bummer about the knee, I might as well get it done asap:)
    I was thinking about the retracking :rolleyes: and I might just string up the over head on the switching yard as well:rolleyes:
    I think it would be neat to have a box motor built to serve the industry;)
    The wire it gets in ya blood, it looks bare without THE WIRE must take me med now:D

    Overhead

    Chris:
    Will your overhead take trolley poles or just pantographs? Almost all my traction has poles on it.
    Be gentle with the knee when you get fixed. One of my relatives had a problem with his surgery and I accused him of trying out fro the Detroit ballet too soon. :D :D
